A Snowman And A Salad

These snowman doughnuts from Krispy Kreme have been on my "holiday-to-eat-list" since the beginning of December. Aren't they cute? I only eat doughnuts twice a year (I'm down one pant & shirt size from last year), so I didn't feel bad getting them. The problem was, I was suppose to get ONE and leave. Well, my doughnut plan failed. I ended up getting a dozen doughnuts!!! LMAO The manager handed my mom & I a free hot doughnut and before I knew it I was picking out a dozen doughnuts. HaHaHa What's worse is, I fell in love with their Christmas tree! It had cute little doughnut & snowman ornaments on it. My inner Veruca Salt voice said...I want a doughnut tree! I want a doughnut tree NOW! Don't care how, I want it nowwwwwwwww! LOL I eventually pried myself away from their doughnut tree and completed my errands. We then had lunch at La Madeleine New Orleans (I showed you the one in Harahan HERE). I ordered a grilled chicken caesar salad. Go figure! So that was my diet! Snowman doughnuts and a salad! What a combination! How's your holiday diet going?

  1. I love that lipstick shade on you - is is the marc jacobs one?
    I also limit my donut intake, but would totally just give in this time of year, A donut tree sounds DIVINE!

    p.s. I would love to know which seller sold those lace dress ornaments. They are so cute!

  2. No diets until after New Year's day! I love your wreath Kim and those doughnuts look yummy:) Have a great day!

  3. That doughnut Christmas tree does look pretty awesome!

    And having a healthy salad earns you a couple more doughnuts, so it's okay you got a box!

    They look delicious!

  7. Kim, I can see why you want that doughnut tree. I'm not even a big doughnut fan but I want it too.
    And I love the balance of the junk food with the salad...hehe
    You crack me up, my friend:D

  8. Oh Kim, I want a donut tree too now!^^ The snowman ones are sooo cute, wish I had them on the Xmas day!:) Yum! Also The Madeleine seems like a very lovely and cozy place. You look adorable dear, I like your sweater and the lips!:) Happy Friday and weekend, hope your holidays are going fine. Kisses! xo

  9. Doughnuts are my weakness! Haha! I had one on Christmas eve, I don't even regret it. Diet atarts in the new year! :P I hope you had a great Christmas!

  10. As long as you enjoyed them, the rest doesn't matter. :) It's a treat and it's Christmas. :) We've enjoyed ours here, too - I have a soft (very soft) spot for pannetone and needless to say, consumed it in plentiful quantities. :) :) :) Honestly, though, 3 days of Christmas delights made me crave my usual vegetables and savouries so much - trust me, broccoli soup never tasted as good as it did yesterday. :)

  11. Firstly, I never eat doughnuts and you just made me crave for one :-) but above all, you look super cute in these pictures, that lipstick rocks on you and your hair is growing beautifully. I'd love to see you with crazy curls a la Tina Turner!! Today I had a soup for lunch but now I'm craving for something super sweet!!!

  12. Your post makes me want to turn back time to Christmas again, Kim. As always it was over just like that, perhaps next year I will do a better job at gift shopping and putting myself at ease. You looked festive and pretty in that sweater and shade of lipstick. Your wreath is beautiful, I like that it has nice pop of Christmas colors yet not over the top. Too bad all Krispy Creme closed down here, snowman design is too cute. I dont eat donuts much either but I find myself eating too much desserts in the past 2 weeks and my pants feel tight...eeeek. Have a fun and relaxing weekend Kim.

  13. Mmm those donuts look delicious! Krispy Kreme is dangerous, haha! I have tons of leftover Christmas desserts and it is BAD!

    I am not overly fond of doughnuts, but, in NORTH San Diego there's a place called Peterson's that makes some AWESOME one's...I love their blueberry one!
    Luckily it's too far of a drive, or I would have major problems!

  22. Oh, those things look really nice :)

  39. Aww Kim, this is so cute and at least you balanced it out with the salad. I know what you mean about only eating donuts twice a year - I used to love them as a kid, but it just doesn't work past the age of 14 hehe. Krispy Kreme are so delicious - the best donuts ever. Now you have me craving some, so it's a good thing there isn't any Krispy in Switzerland lol. Happy Holidays and your lip color is gorgeous and matches the post. Can't wait to see what's coming for you and 'A Very Sweet Blog' in 2014. :)


  40. Hi Kim! Congrats on the weight loss! I'm still working on mine, lol, I've been suffering from a sore throat since Christmas so I'm probably the only one that "lost weight" during the holidays. Hahaha! Love Krispy Kreme! Wishing you all the best in the new year!

    xo Jo

  41. I mentioned to you on Instagram how much I love Krispy Kreme! I eat them way more than I probably should. I'll let you in on a sad little secret, for a while I had the Krispy Kreme app on my phone that would tell me when the hot light was on! LOL! Everyone knows it taste better with the hot light on ;-)

    Happy weekend!

  42. love the lipstick shade!! i love bold shades like this! and that food looks so yum. I am not a huge fan of doughnuts, but when I have it, I can't stop at one!

  43. Such a treat to see your photo, my dear Kim, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    It all looks delicious!

  52. I've visited Krispy Kreme 4 times this holiday season just for the cute, cute, cute snowman donuts. Since it is the season to share, I have decided to share the calories and gave a few boxes to friends and family. hehehehe

  53. I have never been to one of these places never. Never had a krispy Kreme either. Looks very interesting as i love doughnuts, haha!! You look marvellous my dear, i love the lip colour you are wearing, that is wow wow!! And I won't talk about the food, I could eat it all ;) Am so pleased you had a great time! xxx
